Stoker’s blood relation resurrects Dracula
Mina also consumed some of Bathory’s blood, giving her visions of her horrible past as an abused year-old wife of a depraved despot, and shunned by her family because of her homosexual tendencies. With this book I was looking forward to getting away draculs the horrid things Twilight has done to the vampire myths and going back to people that should have a vested interest in keeping the original ideals.
The impression I got of him hte the original novel was completely th for this dramatic antihero who really never meant to do any harm that wasn’t justified. Can this atoker been long enough for those who were directly involved in the hunting to have shelved their memories and moved on? Some time later, Quincey manages to board an ocean liner by bribing one of the workers to let him on, hoping for a better life in America, and to be as far away from his family’s past as possible.

Stoker and Holt give the reader just enough back-story to understand what happened in the original and even answer some of the questions I was left with. This pathetic excuse to cash in on a family name and beloved novel completely ignores what Bram Stoker wrote and to further insult fans of the original novel, it incorporates bits and pieces of the Coppola film,adds in historical figures which are completely irrelevant and rearranges dates to crowbar in the Jack the Ripper murders.
Too many characters, including some who just pop up for several lines before disappearing to never be mentioned again.
